It's a old race car right ?I lived in Ft Lauderdale about 6 years ago and I think I saw one at a exotic auto dealership. There is a strip on sunrise blvd. that has about any car you can think off. We lived by Las Olas and would ride our bikes by once a week to sunrise just to look at the cars!!<P>

The Viper and the Vette are nice cars, but I don't lust after them. This car... this car is hot. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/cool.gif"><P>I'd put it on my list right behind a Group-A 240T. <P>

A 1966 race GT40 just sold on Barrett-Jackson auction(on speedvision) for $375,000 and the 1967 street revsion didn't sell but had a reserve of $350,000. Wow!! I wonder what the concept sells for ??<P>

Seriously though, I would buy one if I could afford it.<P>There has been a lot of discussion about this car on every Mustang forum out there. It's also on the cover of the latest Car & Driver.<P><BR>It would be really sweet if Ford produced it, but it would be overpriced, supposedly close to $100k. Significantly more than a Z06 and still a good deal more than a Viper.<P><BR>In my personal opinion, I can't help but wonder why they chose a blown 5.4L V8. They should have used an engine with more cubic inches (427 Windsor perhaps?) and kept it N/A. There's no replacement for displacement.<P>

Very Nice.Ford need's to build it,but at an estimated base price of $100,000.00 who's there target customer.No way I could afford one.And it seem's like the bottom is about to fall out on exotic's and supercar's.But it would be a great image car for Ford if the quality is great not just good.It's a beautiful car,500h.p 500lb-ft 6-speed manual,curb weight around 3000,top speed estimated at 185.WOW!If you had 100 thou would you buy a Ford.

I think it would compete with the 911 and the 360 Modena in addition to the Viper. There's a market for it I think as long as Ford resolves itself to sell low production, much like it does with Aston Martin.<P>The thing is, Ford has said that it wouldn't support the car with a factory effort in Sports Car racing. I believe Aston will get that funding if anyone does. <P>That doesn't mean though that Saleen or the like wouldn't do it. That'd be kinda cool, seeing a GT40 campaign in the ALMS and at LeMans.

Look at Roush or Steeda if this hits production.<BR><P>
